"Westerns poignant celebration of human resilience is nothing short of spectacular." Sight and Sound


A slow-burning thriller, Western follows a group of German construction workers on a job in rural Bulgaria. The foreign land awakens their sense of adventure, but tensions mount when a new crew member begins mingling with the wary locals. Updating the Western genre in ways that are attuned to both old codes of masculinity and new forms of colonialism, director Valeska Grisebach has announced herself as one of the most exciting and significant new voices in world cinema. (119 mins., DCP)
